SAVANNAH, Ga. (Dec. 23, 2021) – Erin Tatum, most recently the Interim Executive Director of Savannah Music Festival (SMF), launched nonprofit consulting agency Nonprofit Nomad in December 2021. Drawing on her 13 years of experience in the nonprofit and university performing arts, Erin will offer services such as grant readiness and funding strategy preparation, grant writing, and consulting.

Erin’s previous roles have included Managing Director and Director of Artist Relations at SMF, as well as General Manager and Facilities & House Manager at the University of Georgia (UGA) Performing Arts Center. A proud UGA graduate, Erin received a Master of Public Administration, Bachelor of Arts (Music), and Bachelor of Business Administration (Management) degrees. Throughout her career, Erin has secured more than $3.27 million in grant funding.

“Having been in my client’s shoes, I understand there simply aren’t enough hours in the day to write grants plus do the work that got you into nonprofits to begin with,” Erin says. “I want to help arts nonprofits submit grant proposals that are likely to be funded.”

Nonprofit Nomad will join Erin’s love of serving nonprofit organizations with travel. She and her husband, Doug Tatum, will travel full-time in a travel trailer with their dog Chewbacca. Doug owns Ursus Expedition Services, which provides tailored predator protection, equipment, and training wherever knowledgeable outdoor guides are needed.
